This week is Anti - Bullying Week. The focus this year is the REACH OUT!
Bullying affects millions of lives and can leave us feeling hopeless. But it doesn’t have to be this way. If we challenge it, we can change it. And its tarts by reaching out.
Whether it’s in school, at home, in the community or online, let’s reach out and show each other the support we need. Reach out to someone you trust if you need to talk. Reach out to someone you know is being bullied. Reach out and consider a new approach. And it doesn’t stop with young people. From teachers to parents and influencers to politicians, we all have a responsibility to help each other reach out. Together, let’s be the change we want to see. Reflect on our own behaviour, set positive examples and create kinder communities. It takes courage, but it can change lives. So, this Anti-Bullying Week, let’s come together and reach out to stop bullying.
Below are some useful activities that you can complete with your child at home.
The Taster gives you a general introduction into what Makaton is and who uses it, with the opportunity to learn a few signs and symbols too. The signs and symbols are aimed at pupils in the early years.
Date: 12th January 2023
Venue: This session will be face to face at TESCO stairfoot, community room
